Dear mommafozz, Thank you for posting your review and sharing your experiences about your stay on TripAdvisor. I'm sorry you found the room a little chilly as we do keep the heating on all day with the little heater as a boost when you arrive. As we do not know whens are going to check in, it would be wasteful to have it on for unduly long periods of time. i hope the room soon warmed once the additional heater was on. We do provide Sleep Kits free of charge for guests that are light sleepers or sensitive to the road noise. They contain eye masks, ear plugs and lovely Lavender Sleep spray. Details are noted in our In room folders. Our city facing rooms are lovely and quiet so and the City Kings are fab rooms with split levels down to gorgeous bathrooms. Perhaps an option to bare in mind for your next visit? We look forward to welcoming you to Drakes again in the not too distant future. Best wishes from Al the Team at Drakes
